chuck hagel on obama administration policies. because you know, jon, when you become defense secretary or secretary of state, you don't run your own little fiefdom or foreign policy or defense party. you're part of the obama team. this is a good opportunity for the american people to get a solid airing on the issues that you know, face us. nuclear iran. our troops in afghanistan. you mentioned the defense budget, missile defense. proliferation. all these issues. so i'm hoping that chuck hagel will be pressed by members of the senate on the senate armed services committee about these very important issues that affect us today. jon: presumably he has been asked those opinions on those issues by the president. the president wouldn't have picked him for the job if he didn't share the president's views? >> no argument there because that is why this is really important because there is lot to be concerned about the president's foreign policy. look at syria, 22 months, 62,000 deaths. we have had no effect on iran's movement towards a nuclear weapon. what about the rise of china? are we going

on the obama administration's shifting account in the eight days that followed 9/11. the hallmark of that shift, of course, was u.n. ambassador susan rice's appearance on five sunday shows september 16th when she asserted on the basis of of talking points prepared by the ic that benghazi was not a preplanned attack, a position later disavowed by the obama administration as self-evidently untrue. >> so, and we did not -- i think accurate, sir, i certainly did not know of any reports that contradicted the ic talking points at the time that ambassador rice went on the tv shows. >> reporter: yet such reports were circulating in clinton's own department and at the national security council where she sits well before rice's sunday show tour. fox news has published internal state department e-mails that noted on 9/11 a claim of responsibility for the benghazi attacks by the terrorist group ansar al-sharia. those e-mails were sent to the nfc, the pentagon and to the white house situation room. jon? jon: interesting. james rosen in washington, thank you. >> reporter: thank you. >> well, a mix

like the aclu that these proceedings you should the obama administration are -- under the obama administration are far from transparent. patti ann: is there any speculation as to who this third party might be? >> reporter: not at all clear, but what's most telling is the military judge said it was not himself, and it was not the court security officer, so this came as quite a surprise to him personally. patti ann: right. meanwhile, what are we learning, catherine, about the administration's plans to close gitmo? >> reporter: well, an obscure internal state department announcement has revealed the administration's direction on closing the guantanamo detention camps. daniel freed, who has been charged with overseeing the transfer of detainees, has been reassigned, and no replacement has been identified. a military source told fox that this is a tacit acknowledgment that closing the camps is not a priority in mr. obama's second term. since 2009 the number of detainees has dropped under president obama from 242 to the current level of 166. 71 have been transferred out, the differenc

. >> reporter: this is big, arthel, because the obama administration has used the concerns of lawmakers in nebraska to put the brakes on the keystone xl oil pipeline, and now the governor says he's okay with the project moving forward after the pipeline's operator came up with a new route that bypasses a sensitive area in his state. president obama has defended his controversial decision to stop the pipeline project by saying that even nebraska's republican governor was opposed to it. now that's no longer the case. supporters of the pipeline have pointed out the number of jobs that it could potentially create. critics have said that it will pose many environmental problems, and now the president has to decide whether to give the project his okay at a time when he used part of his inaugural address yesterday to reach out to environmentalists. and we've just heard from our crack white house team, arthel, sarah courtney, one of our producers there saying that the white house spokesman was asked about this at the briefing today, jay carney referred reporters to the state department which he

. the problem is that this administration, for good reasons or bad, they have zero credibility with the gun rights community. they believe that dianne feinstein and barack obama wants to take away guns. they believe that in their bones. this legislation is so full of loopholes and wants to lay down a predicate to make it easier down the road to check gun owners and sue people who didn't store their guns properly. give the right government to go in people's homes. there is no trust that that is where the democrats will stop it as a down payment on a slippery slope. jon: these are the people in 2008, senator obama sock clinging to their guns and religion? >> yes, these are the people that he believes he can move and persuade to be in favor of gun control in states like west virginia and wyoming. it's not going to happen. i will be very surprised if this thing ever gets out of the senate. i think speaker john boehner love the idea of saying that we will give serious consideration to whatever harry reid senate passes and sends to us in a matter of gun control. it's a terrible issue for
